With several illustrations of this glass, to the right of this article, at our on-line store and lots more at our physical store location, you will walk away with a winner either with which to decorate your Christmas table or as a joyous gift for a special friend.

If you would like a ruby red or forest green vase, a centerpiece such as our ruby red epergne or a sandwich tray and ruby red cup - we have all three. To accompany your dining pleasure don't forget to add the charm of our cranberry flash "King's Crown" pattern liqueur glasses and water goblets.

The Anchor Hocking clear crystal sandwich trays and accompanying ruby red cups would be ideal to serve a fruit cake dessert with a cup of punch. The ruby red epergne with the Anchor Hocking ruffled ruby red glass bowl in a hand-wrought iron floral stand would be ideal for a holly and ivy arrangement at the top with space beneath to place bonbons (in the ruffled ruby red bowl) at the bottom.



The Westmoreland "English Hobnail" pattern emerald green Depression glass pitcher is yet another fabulous treat for the dining room table during a Christmas morning breakfast or evening meal.

The Crowing Jewel of the party would be our wonderful cranberry-ruby flash punch bowl set with twelve pedestal cups. This charming large punch bowl, "Cube" pattern by the Indiana Glass Company, will give you the pzazz needed for your Christmas party to be remembered.
